Amateur Radio Operators are needed to participate in the communications effort for the Boston Marathon on April 18, 2005. Amateurs should have their own two meter portable with extra batteries. Some locations require extended-range antennas. 440 MHz portables, dual banders, mobile rigs and remote bases are a plus. For more information or to volunteer, please visit the Bostom Marathon Amateur Radio Communications website, http://www.bmarc.info. Or you may contact Bob DeMattia at (508) 393-4148.
